Pregnant after a Loss

Did any of you...

Hesitate to put up a ticker? I am almost afraid to put it up. When did you put up yours? I'm thinking soon but I dunno. I feel dumb and I know that it wouldn't change anything if I did. Just curious as to if I'm the only one who waits. I'm 7 weeks 3 days.

  • I understand the apprehension. I waited until after out N/T scan.

  • I'm with you. I didn't put one up yet either and I'm 9 weeks 2 days. I found out about my missed mc at 9 weeks 3 days last time. I might put one up after the ultrasound this week. You're right, it doesn't change anything, but I don't want to jinx it. Last time I was so confident that I bought a big sister tee after the first us. My dh said I was jinxing it and he turned out right. Oh superstition.

    I know. I was confident too and lost our around 10 weeks last time. I think I'm waiting to get past the milestone or something.

  • I understand that not everyone is ready to put up a ticker right away.  Mine went up within a couple days of my BFP.

  • I put one up at some point in the first tri following a good u/s. I then felt self-conscious and scared and took it down. I've since decided that it's not something I want to do but I couldn't tell you why. I always know exactly how far along I am, though, so I don't need the ticker to keep track.

  • I put my ticker up straight away because I am trying so hard to come from a place of belief and confidence that I am pregnant and it will stay that way until term. 

    I want to try not to act in a way that is expectant of, or preparing for, another miscarriage, even though it's always a fear in my mind.

    I guess I'm kind of going with the whole manifestation theory. Act as if it is, and it will be.

    Naive and unfounded? Maybe. But I'm doing what I can to get me through this.

    I completely understand waiting until you're comfortable. I put mine up as an act of defiance against my own fear, really.

    Me too. I also believe that this child deserves as much celebration as the last, my own heart be damned.

    I once asked my mom about being pregnant with me, and she couldn't remember anything. I was number 5, and it all blended together. She couldn't even remember the day I was born. It reaaly hurt my feelings. I didn't ever want my sons to compare notes and find elation in one and fear in the other.

  • I never did this time.....I updated my siggy to talk about honeybadger, but just couldn't add a ticker. After having had to take down two of them following my losses, I just couldn't.

    I do have an app on my phone though that tracks the little dude along.

  • I never put ones up for DD or DS.  I'm stupidly superstitious.  I don't even have tickers up to show how old they are.

  • Well you guys are all better than me.  I was so crazed with anxiety that I told myself I wouldn't even join this site until I was out of 1st tri.  I gave in and joined at almost 12 weeks and created a ticker right away but I really regret not joining sooner.  To think of all the support I could have received (and maybe given?) during those first incredibly hard months makes me a little sad.  In other words, I get it.
